New Orleans Labor and Employment Member Christine Tenley appeared on WWL-TV’s broadcast coverage regarding the City of New Orleans’ announcement August 12, 2021 that proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID test result will be required to enter restaurants, entertainment and event venues, and other locations beginning Monday, August 16.
“For businesses, the tendency is to panic, and I really think we need to keep it simple,” said labor and employment attorney Christine Tenley.
Tenley works with businesses trying to navigate the pandemic. She said employees will have to be trained on what to look for and employers should think along the lines of, no shirt, no shoes, no vaccine, no service.
“If businesses face people who don’t want to comply, they have the right to refuse service to them,” said Tenley.
